In an unusual choice for Disney, this attraction pokes fun at itself and it's dated effects. The landscaping and theming along the river is quite nice. Although the ride could use some sprucing up to keep up with the times, to some extent the fact that it's much the same as it was back in 1971 adds to the fun.

I'll have to disagree with rshaul. This ride wouldn't be the same without the skipper's jokes and they are a little monotonous but I wouldn't say unfunny. The animatronic snakes, monkeys, and tigers in the cave ARE quite impressive as well.

Unfunny and unimpressive ride. Don't get it why is so popular.

A true Disney classic. I wouldn't be surprised if some updates were made once the film of the same name is released.

User ID: danzin2it   Thrill: 2  Theme: 3  Overall: 3 (5/22/2007)
A great way to get out of the sun for a bit and hear some funny, if not cheesy, jokes.

User ID: Jen   Thrill: 2  Theme: 3  Overall: 3 (5/14/2007)
the script is legendary :]

User ID: WolfDreamer   Thrill: 3  Theme: 4  Overall: 3 (4/12/2007)
Another great way to relax, but kind of tame after riding Kilimanjaro Safari. The guide's narration is so cliche it's hilarious.

User ID: Blockage   Thrill: 2  Theme: 4  Overall: 3 (3/22/2007)
What's not to love? It's slow, the guide is sarcastic, and everyone can go on!

User ID: GoofMan13   Thrill: 2  Theme: 4  Overall: 3 (12/20/2006)
The tour guides complete the trip. Very funny (ha)

User ID: Brerwiseguy   Thrill: 3  Theme: 3  Overall: 3 (11/30/2006)
The Fastpass makes this ride a must ride since it can get crowded at various hours

User ID: copperbottom19   Thrill: 2  Theme: 4  Overall: 3 (7/11/2006)
It all depends on the guide. And quit saying its dated. It clearly isn't. It exists with the sole purpose of being dated. To feel that it being dated detracts from the attraction gives me the impression that the attraction goes totally over peoples heads.

User ID: Scooterman   Thrill: 4  Theme: 4  Overall: 4 (2/27/2006)
Great ride! Clearely a disney classic.

User ID: MrToadWildRider   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (12/27/2005)
Voted 3. Fun ride, great corny jokes, but needs some updating. It takes up soo much land and it seems to be sparce in some places.

User ID: disney-cruise-fan   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (10/30/2005)
this ride is great for all ages! the guides are very funny.

User ID: disneyrn   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (9/23/2005)
Great family attraction. A good place to start or end your day at the park.

User ID: disney-cruise-fan   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (9/17/2005)
this is a great ride for all ages, and is one of my all time favorites


User ID: jriversjr   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (8/5/2005)
Loved it in 1978, But needs to have some work don to it.

User ID: disney-cruise-fan   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (7/7/2005)
this ride is grest for all ages. my whole family enjys the funny tour guides and the animals.

User ID: happyface   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (6/2/2005)
I love it. It is so very corny!

User ID: brerduzzy   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (4/13/2005)
Actually this ride is much better at night it gives the Jungle cruise a much better effect since its darker and at least the animals arent asleeo either I like this ride alot too you wiseguys

User ID: DAZZIEDUKES49   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (3/23/2005)
NEEDS MORE ATTRACTIONS IN THE AREA

User ID: treeray   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: Unrated (3/3/2005)
This is a nice ride which offers diversity during the course of the day. Good scenery. Definately fastpass it or the wait could be long.

User ID: lasviolin   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 2 (12/23/2004)
This tame ride isn't worth the wait. However, if you want to ride it, you MUST get a fast pass.

User ID: thunderman   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (12/7/2004)
Relaxing ride through the jungle on one of Disney's original attractions. Better during the day...you can see more of the scenery

User ID: Dark_Disney_Princess   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (11/25/2004)
i think they are telling the same jokes they were telling when i was 6. yeah it may have only been 14 years ago but still, and im not complaineing but it is still funny i think.

User ID: Disneylover06   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (7/14/2004)
It's a nice way to relax and cool off. It depends on which tourguide you get but you won't know intill you try.

User ID: abby88   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (6/19/2004)
It all really depends on the skipper you get - a bad one can make it boring, or a good one can make it one of the highlights of your trip.

User ID: JackSparrow   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (5/27/2004)
A ride to get out of the sun, and learn a bit about the jungle and hear a few corny jokes. A classic

User ID: ridermage   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 2 (4/30/2004)
I don't want to seem old or crotchety, but I swear this ride used to be more fun. Your enjoyment really depends on how good your pilot is, and the last few times I rode it, they seemed less than enthused.

User ID: chrisandginny   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (10/16/2003)
The best!!! This one is a classic and is not to be missed. Best at night. It may be old and corny but it hope it never dies. Always A Great Time.

User ID: bloodhound407   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (9/2/2003)
Kind of corny, but it is a classic.

User ID: nats   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 2 (8/10/2003)
Good ride when it first came out but now it looks too artificial. Desperately needs a makeover

User ID: Brer Doug   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (7/1/2003)
I enjoyed this ride during the day so I went on it two times a day and I liked the animals too

User ID: MickeyManiac   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (6/29/2003)
Great thing to do if you need to take a break from walking. I've memorized the script to the ride because I've done it too many times! The best time to hit ADVENTURELAND is during SpectroMagic and the fireworks, because close to nobody is there!

User ID: Epcot82Guy   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (6/18/2003)
Classic Disney. Great as long as you have a good skipper.

User ID: kanaida03   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (6/5/2003)
Love this ride... however the experience depends on the CM "Tour Guide"

User ID: miamimickey72   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (5/30/2003)
A CLASSIC. I love this ride and it can remain this way for ever. But if Disney wanted, they can add some new things like Tarzan, Lilo & Stitch and even Jungle Book...or all of them. It would give the ride something new. But I love this ride especially with a good guide.

User ID: Liza   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (5/28/2003)
I think the Jungle cruise is the best ride in Walt Disney World. What makes it the best are the skippers and how they can bring it to life.

User ID: GCRockerGrl   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (5/11/2003)
if you get an interesting guide then this ride can be made one of the best rides there! last time i went we got this awesome guide who made jokes and overall made the ride waaaay cooler than it was!!! it rocked!

User ID: SerendipityHQ   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (4/1/2003)
Ah... if you look up ahead, you will see a temple. I'm not sure what could be inside of it. Could be anything from snakes to tigers. I'll make an educated guess. Since we're at Disney World, it'll probably just be a gift shop. We'll check and see." I adore this ride with every fiber of my being. If you get a good guide it can be the highlight of your day.

User ID: jcarvalho   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (3/2/2003)
This ride couldn't be any cornier, but I keep going back for more!

User ID: Mickeygal123   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 2 (2/25/2003)
I thought it was great to relax in and watch the animals. its good when you have just walked a long way and are very tired.

User ID: mdchachi   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (1/7/2003)
Classic Disney. Could be updated or left there as a time capsule. Either way it's fun to ride once in a while.

User ID: leetazhand   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: Unrated (1/6/2003)
I love it very fun and I think it should improve on adding a drop into another cave including new scene such like from tarzan and lilo and the blue monster/dog.

User ID: dreamscometrue   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (12/31/2002)
A Disney classic.. we usually ride this one every other trip, which makes it really fun for the kids and keeps it fresh. Should it be updated? When I look at it, I say yes. But when I look at my kids faces as they ride throught it, I say no! They just love the Disney magic...

User ID: SuperFoxtrot   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 1 (11/30/2002)
Not been updated in I don't know how long.

User ID: Skully   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 2 (11/2/2002)
Just update this ride. PLEASE

User ID: purdyjw   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (10/18/2002)
With the tour-guide's corny pun-filled jokes and asides how can any one not like this ride? This is classic Disney theme park at it's best. I hope my kids and (in the very FAR future) grandkids can enjoy it for a long time to come.

User ID: anonymous   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: Unrated (10/10/2002)
Life is like a rainbow... it has many colors.

User ID: DDMAN26   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (10/6/2002)
A little dated but still fun.

User ID: Disneygirl26   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (10/5/2002)
Good ride! Some jokes aren't really funny, but you can enjoy it. The animatronics are awesome! I ride when I happen to be near it; or there's a short line.

User ID: unocardshark   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (9/14/2002)
Didn't really have the Disney flare I hoped for considering the boat driver spent over half the ride telling us about how much she hated being there.
Perhaps Disney should look into better quality control in Adventureland. Besides that, it is another one of those rides that will always be a Disney staple. It lacks in the thrills and chills but I doubt thats what Walt or the Imagineers really had in mind.

User ID: karina12345   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: Unrated (8/6/2002)
i luv dis ride...its realli amusing...the animalz look real,seroiusly,,,,our captain was mad funnie...i was rollin..lolz...n e way i neva ,mizz diz ride when i visit DL.....bye bye

User ID: Darth Basically   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (7/16/2002)
The seats are weird, and it's strange to look at the scenery all around. I think the seats should be regular like at Universal's Jaws.

User ID: dkosa   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (6/14/2002)
The corny jokes & cheesy AA figures make the ride a true classic. A must-ride on every trip.

User ID: TimC   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (5/12/2002)
Great ride. Perfect for the evening hours as it is very relaxing. Animatronics are dated, but still very fun.

User ID: shawnp0001   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (3/18/2002)
A very entertaining ride, and the guides are always enjoyable narrators.

User ID: seanpaune   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 2 (3/1/2002)
I still couldn't believe they took out the gun:( The boat pilot also seemed to be in a not-very-good-mood.

User ID: dudenilsel   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (2/27/2002)
Great ride!! Always one of my favorites to go on! The skipper is always a hoot to listen to!

User ID: 1313WEBFOOTWLK   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (2/20/2002)
Very nice but not worth more than a 20 minute wait.
The tourguides can be pretty annoying.

User ID: goofy11_us   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (2/7/2002)
My favorite ride in Adventure land. It is an oldy but a goody!

User ID: jalbright   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: Unrated (2/2/2002)
Our 'cruise director' was quite charming!

User ID: mtdagon   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (3/25/2001)
fun fun fun-this one depends greatly on your guide-fantastic at night

User ID: Darth Macho   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (3/22/2001)
After seeing the real animals on the Kilamanjaro Safari, the animatronic ones seemed less thrilling. I would have loved this when I was a kid though.

User ID: ninafeliz1   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (3/11/2001)
This is a WDW classic. I've ridden lots of times, and the jokes never change but the reactions of the riders do. Sometimes you can be with a great group, and even though you've heard the jokes a hundred times they're still funny. Other times you get with a boatload that is either shy, exhausted, or too "cool" to act goofy, and the ride is a bust. Either way, you can't go to the MK and not ride this ride.

User ID: 11640   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (3/7/2001)
This is a must see from a old disney fan.

User ID: kirbysloan   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (11/1/2000)
Gad! Those jokes! Rode it twice and I was amazed that both times were fun and different. The CMs can really get into the spiel with the right crew. It ain't AK's Safari but it isn't supposed to be. I was looking forward to the hippo shooting and was dissapointed it was missing.

User ID: Koolkid10   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: Unrated (10/23/2000)
It was really funny with the skippers and caves. There is nothing else i can say.

User ID: Goofy Liz   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 2 (7/23/2000)
Some Cast Members are getting too jaded. They just don't keep this ride fresh and exciting. I have had 2 experiences where they didn't even try to entertain. Perhaps Disney needs to refresh the ride or change the CM more often!

User ID: FCD01757   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 2 (5/21/2000)
Still the same cruise and some of the same jokes but it is nice and relaxing after walking around alot.

User ID: hosewater   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (5/14/2000)
What a GREAT ride! The jokes are hilarious, I love the groaners! Shame about the odd one or two lame skippers.

User ID: movienut10   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (5/13/2000)
It's the ride host that make this ride a blast. The better the host, the better the ride.

User ID: RyMickey   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 2 (4/4/2000)
With the inception of Animal Kingdom, the Jungle Cruise has unfortunately lost its charm for me at least. And the jokes - how many times can you laugh at "the backside of water?"

User ID: DisneyWizard   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (4/2/2000)
A true classic.

User ID: LaffnStock   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (3/12/2000)
It might be just me, but this Cruise seems better than the D'land version. Our guide was fun and we had a little repartee going back and forth between the scripted lines.I think everyone enjoyed that trip.

User ID: Jeremiah   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (2/5/2000)
Very well done attraction, but it really depends on your guide to make it a great ride or a just O.K. one. I love the ruins...

User ID: TP2000   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 4 (1/27/2000)
I thought this was a slightly better version of Disneyland's opening day classic. The three guides I experienced on a recent visit however weren't quite as sharp as the Disneyland norm, but that can be the luck of the draw. The temple scenes were a fun surprise, and the ride seemed well maintained. But they skippers didn't shoot at the hippo's like they do at Disneyland!

User ID: NancyDVC   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (1/7/2000)
Participation is the key here-laugh at the guide's jokes and get into the spirit of it and you'll have more fun

User ID: TPA_RickWest   Thrill: Unrated  Theme: Unrated  Overall: 3 (1/5/2000)
A GREAT version of the Disneyland Classic, Florida's Jungle Cruise is actually a bit more detailed and so, a bit better than its counterpart in Anaheim. A definite must for all WDW visitors!
